. >> announcer: this is al jazeera. ♪ you are watching the al jazeera news hour, i'm david foster and what we have for you in the next 60 minutes, support for peace talks, the international ride to syria just landed in damascus to meet president assad. argentina's president loses ground in mid-term elections killing off hopes of a third term. [gunfire] emergency talks with the u.n. after renewed fighting between government forces and m 23
rebels in the eastern democratic part of congo. they pray for a return home 65 years after being forced out. ♪ the u.n. arab league arrived for talks with the syrian government planned in geneva next month and he has been touring the region in the past week talking to all sides involved in the conflict and been to countries that support it like turkey and kanta and talks with groups against fighting with the government and met iran's new president who is a supporter in the region telling him the country's
presence is vital for the geneva talks to succeed. and let's bring bill joining us live from beirut and i understand he drove from beirut to damascus and he is there, what is he going to do? >> well, he is due to meet with the syrian president bashir assad and foreign minister and this will be a very difficult mission, as difficult as it was in the past simply because the positions on either side have not changed much. the opposition still says it would not go to geneva unless it is to find a mechanism to basically get rid of bashir assad as president of syria and pave the way for a transitional government, damascus position is that it will not sit at the table with any armed rebel groups or any rebel groups who have any links to foreign states so that is basically most of the syrian national council. so it is a very difficult
mission. and also coupled by the fact just a few weeks ago bashir said he may run for presidential elections in 2012. >> reporter: what is the best that brahimi can come out of this with? >> reporter: pardon me? >> what is the best that brahimi can hope for from his time in damascus? >> i think what he can hope for is to try to find a tough position from damascus and if he indeed gets that and that will depend how much leverage will iran have on syria, he will have to go back to the opposition and tell them listen guys you need to come to the geneva meeting. opposition said it will meet on the 9th of november and then it will decide at that point, bear in mind also that you also have about 19 rebel factions who issued a statement saying that it considered anyone who went to
those talks as traitors and it actually went as far as saying those people who would indeed attend that meeting in geneva would also be tried in a court by those rebel groups. so this is a very difficult situation really. >> you spent a lot of time in syria, lebanon too where there are so many syrians what want to talk to people who want to listen to the plight, does anybody think geneva two has the remote chance of achieving anything? >> really when you talk to people here around whether it's lebanese or syria they are putting little hope in all of this. some people would tell you that at the moment bashir assad is complying with his chemical weapons program in the sense he gave the report about how he plans to destroy it with all the details about the program and that is satisfies the u.s. among those who oppose bashir
assad and international communities are concerned mainly with the chemical weapons rather than what happens with syria and the after bashir assad. so it's all around a bit of pessimism when people look at this geneva two and people will tell you they don't really think it will happen. >> reporter: thank you, that is live for us in beirut on brahimi's trip into damascus and he arrived a short while ago. the fighting continues in the country tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed in the last 30 months and lacking money and material to rebuild houses many syrians have now resorted to using mud for temporary shelters and here is more. >> reporter: he is preparing the foundations to his house which he is building himself out of mud. and bashir assad's army caused him to flee to the country side with wife and 7 children in
search of refuge and it's deserted and he is putting a roof over their heads. >> translator: our home has been destroyed. we came here with nothing but the children were terrified so we had to flee. >> reporter: but it's not only him building a new home out of mud. in the village the people say the proper building material they don't have and are returning to making the houses from earth. >> translator: cement and bricks are too expensive and we can't afford them so we decided to build from mud and all we needed for that was dirt and hey. >> reporter: there is a total absence of government services and with the cold season just around the corner building basic homes is the only thing to make a winter more bearable and the families are forced to live in mud houses arab countries are constructing the world's tallest buildings and makes the reality of bringing up their children in a mud hut even more harder to
take. al jazeera. >> reporter: the ruling party in argentina has control of congress in mid-term elections and opposition has made major gains, partial results show that the president front for victory party lost seats in four of argentina's biggest districts and that resulted the chances of changing the constitution to allow her to stand for a third term. and we report from buenos aries. >> reporter: putting on a brave face, and supporters of argentina's ruling party celebrated even though sunday election confirmed they lost in key districts throughout the country. >> translator: we will continue building this dream of a better argentina said vice president defiantly and this accounts for 40% of votes nationwide the
president kirchner chief of staff beat the star candidate for congress. and he was more business friendly than the president is already being mentioned as a possible frontrunner for the 2015 presidential race. >> translator: let's open our arms and begin respecting our differences which is the only way to build a country. >> reporter: this election was clearly a test of the public mood and a sign that the era is ending and kristina kirchner was elected by a landslide a year ago and they were hoping for another landslide and enough support to allow it to reform the constitution to allow the president kirchner a third term in office and now that possibility is out. soaring inflation, corruption and crime as well as the
president's often authority style and the front party is still the largest single political force with the largest number of deputies in congress. but the president will no longer have a free ride. >> she is going to need to compromise in congress to obtain legislation. there is no doubt that that complete control that the kirchners had during ten years is finished. >> reporter: just how the often tempormental ways is unclear after under going surgery earlier this month. >> reporter: in columbia farc rebels freed a former u.s. marine and kevin sutay was kidnapped going through the jungle and the police warned him not to travel in that region. coming up, on the news hour we have this, election results put
the ally of the georgia prime minister ahead in the presidential elections. and. >> i'm investigating the impact that illegal sand mining, is having on the environment and people's lives. >> reporter: and in sport find out if baseball beards bought the boston red sox to the end and we will have sports in about 35 minutes. ♪ and at the u.n. security council they will be talking about the situation in the eastern part of the democratic republic of congo later today after a peace keeper was killed there and three days of fighting and the army says it has taken over a number of towns in the province from the march 23, the m 23 rebels including the stronghold and finding between government forces and m
23 began on friday less than a week after the peace talks between the two sides broke down and the government and rebels are now blaming each other for launching the first attacks. and m 23 rebel fighters join the congo army in 2009 and defected saying they have been treated poorly and the government did not live up to the deal. and the group took over territory in the province and briefly seized the provincial capitol. there are allegations and both nations deny and we are live from paris with the editor of africa international. are we seeing resurgance in congo or isolated incidents caused by frustration? >> well, yes, the latter definitely. i think there is a big
fundamental change now because four years the dlc government has been accusing uganda of helping the malisha and helping the m 23, new thing. nothing really has happened much. at times the u.n. has sent sort of to watch on, to watch what was going on and not really interfering and not being reactive enough. this has changed. now the troops are allowed to fire back when they are attacked to protect the population or to protect themselves and on the political level, now the government and the u.n. and even the traditional france of uwanda
and the united states recognized that uwanda is part of the problem. >> reporter: why won't -- help us with this if you would, why would ruwanda and uganda want to destabilize in the eastern part? >> because they have economy interest in it and ruwanda has been exploiting a lot of the natural resources via companies and proxys and is a clear thing that they are involved in the dsc and northern very much. and their interest is to weaken that part of the country and that the government should not have any power in it. it's very easy to have, to do the deals in the way they want.
so for them it was also a clear situation because the central government of congo has had to traditionally no grip whatsoever on that part of the country. and very much so since the insurgency started, i would say back in 1994. and so it has been a traditional thing that they are there and also they had an unofficial excuse because part of the people who were fleeing the masockas at the border in congo including some of the let's say fighting against the government of tagali. >> reporter: sorry to say we have to leave it there. we appreciate your analysis of
the situation in that part of africa thank you very much indeed. hundreds of people in sue dan's disputed region have a referendum and the choice is whether or not to join sudan or south sudan and it's a territory on the border between the two nations and they both claim it as their own. and a local group known as the abyei referendum committee organized the vote but it's not supported by either of the governments and the poll results will not be formally recognized by either sudan or south sudan. the former rebel group said it was not behind an ambush on a mini bus saturday that killed one person, the president blamed the attack on ramomo and the next day they raided their base in the mountains. this is after a declaration last week that a two-decade peace deal was over. and from mozambique we report.
>> reporter: it's tense and they head to a base and recently captured from the rebel group and other soldiers go in the bush on patrol and some believe the leader led into the mountains during the assault. the village nearby is deserted and families lived during the attack are too afraid to come home. he is one of them and moved into town with his wife and children for safety. >> translator: the government and when they fight it's ordinary people who get killed and we want to go home. >> reporter: after the attack on the base a few days ago the peace deal signed in 1992 was over and the rebel group wants more say in the running of the country and wants fighters integrated into the national army and a share of the cole mines and off shore gas exploitation. this road goes to the capitol but it's not safe. that is because armed men regularly attack people using
the road especially at night and they have to stay put and cannot go further because it's getting dark and dangerous. the highway has not been safe for months. >> translator: most people are in trucks which have been something like that. so now i don't know what the government can do. >> reporter: army reenforcements have been brought into the area but they are weak militarily and a civil war right now is unlikely. a localized guerila could cost revenue. >> reporter: early results and only early ones in georgia's presidential election show that he has taken 62% of the vote and
enough to avoid a runoff in this former soviet republic and we report. >> reporter: celebrations to mark the end of an era and the beginning of a new style of government in georgia. and he will take the presidency with some two thirds of the total vote and he had one man to thank, the prime minister. . >> translator: i'd like to thank a person who is very important to me, who is and always will be a very serious authority, my friend. >> reporter: and the new president will remain head of state, constitutional changes mean real power is about to transfer to vili and the prime minister has conversely pledged to step down and he claims to have restored georgia democracy and believes the nation should be grateful. >> translator: a second round would have shown that georgians do not have a sense of gratitude
and didn't want it and we would have won anyway and victory would have come anyway and i wanted my feelings to be right and understand you correctly and i do love you. >> reporter: in the end candidates appear not to have come close and david of president u and m movement conceded defeat and he placed a hold out until official results are in. >> i know that people are very active and we had real support and i'm sure that the numbers which will come will be absolutely different than the exit polls which have been publicized. >> reporter: and he is leaving after ten years at the top. his departure completes a peaceful change over of power that began with his administration's defeat last year. >> georgia will go through this and looks like it no matter what will be the result of this elections. we already have a serious
setback unfortunately in the economy. and law an order. and in our international situation and reputation and hope it's all reversible. >> the prime minister is georgia's richest man and denies he will continue to expert influence after he steps down. yet he hand picked them and he is a political unknown and now he is set to choose his own successor. georgia is about to begin a new era of parliamentary democracy and it's unclear where the real power will reside, al jazeera. >> reporter: where does this sit with the northern neighbors? we will hear from a political analyst in moscow and say they wanted a new leader to improve their foreign standing. >> reporter: first of all it is seen as a big defeat and big humiliation for the outgoing president.
and his relations with russia were a disaster and since he came to power in 2003, relations continued to worsen and there was even a short war and still we don't have any diplomatic relations with georgia. so what happened is seen as a signal that georgian people do not like him. they do not like his outer liberal economic policies and probably they don't like he is anti-russian foreign policy and at a certain moment he will have to choose because, yes, he made the capitol in russia but he will continue his own foreign policy and so far he has been maneuvering between russia and the west. but if he is serious about joining the european union or having associate membership, the union will require him to worsen relations with russia and that happened to ukraine and not
avoided by georgia. >> in the uk the defunct news of the world newspaper rebecca brooks and kandi corazon are in court to stand trial on phone hacking charges so let's go to roy who is outside of the court in london and tell us what is going to happen, roary. >> reporter: david, this starts with a bang on the first day is mostly procedural so we are likely to see the swearing in of the jury and we will get an outline really of how the trial is going to proceed. we won't actually have much of the nitty gritty of the trial or evidence or anything like that on the first day. we will see the defendants in court. 8 of them in total, rebecca brooks, the former editor of the sun newspaper and news of the world and the former boss of news international, that is the
uk newspaper arm of murdoch's empire and charlie brooks and andy corazon, an editor news of the world and the spin doctor director of communications and five other defendants. there are a number of different charges against all of them and essentially what they boil down to is three really, conspiracy to intercept communications in the course of their transmission and relates to the phone hacking elements of this trial. conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office, i think that particularly relates to andy corazon and his office working for the uk government and also conspiracy to go against justice and they are breathing innocence. there is a huge amount of media interest in this. you can probably see the press actually it has been taken down behind my shoulder but there is a separate annex inside the
court where journalists from all over the world are going to be monitoring the course of this trial. >> reporter: it's also created a massive amount of public interest too not least because where the phone hacking was concerned there was some pretty vulnerable people involved as well. >> yeah, exactly, this really is a story about power and it's a human story too. the people, some of the people who are being put on trial inside the court behind me, remensly influential and well-known and rebecca brooks and andy corazon were at the peak of their careers and peak of their industries and this really is something the population here in the uk and the world is very interested in. the uk tabloid industry has been renown for ages as being an feroius body of people going after stories and some people think the way they went after the stories was wrong and could
write their own rules and for many people this is a chance to see the uk tabloid industry cut to size and it represents a huge tension between how you balance a free press and how you curtail some of the press's worst offenses. and people want to see what happens with this. it also relates to murdoch, one of the biggest media tycoons in the world, it's going to be a long trial and it's going to go on probably until april of next year, it's going to be fascinating to see how it pans out. >> reporter: a bit of a change of attack and we will give the viewers in a moment pictures of terrible weather in britain and i understand it would get as far as london and doesn't look too bad where you are. >> well, it's not too bad at the moment. it has been fairly hairy overnight when i came out of my house this morning on my road, there were two or three trees down there. they are talking about this
being sort of the worst storm to hit the uk in five years or so. a very, very strong winds and very heavy rain. think a lot of rain over the past few weeks and the ground is particularly soft and trees come down easily and block roads and causes a disruption. i think most parts of the country have been spared particularly serious damage but certainly going to be a nuisance for a lot of people this morning. >> these are the pictures i'm talking about and you may want to listen to what he has to say in a moment and thanks for that. it has been described as the worst storm in a decade and more than 200,000 homes and one person reported to have died, a tree falling on her home, heavy rain and hurricane force winds disrupted rail networks and flights and flood alerts have been issued in some areas. so for the sake of our viewers in the uk and worldwide and also roary and camera team how bad is
it going to be? >> pleased to say the worst is now over. we see from the satellite how quickly the system made its way through the big area of cloud and area of low pressure rounds 3:00 this morning and swept across the southern parts of the uk and hundreds of trees on the southeast corner caused mayhem and 220,000 people still remain without power, david, at the moment. so widespread disruption and led to problems in the southern and southeast england and east anglia and we look at the wind gusts and the worst winds are through the england channel as the system say wind gust of 159 kilometers per hour and 100 kilometers there and in belgium we say 98 kilometers and 72 as it went across and it's moving through quickly as i said and
the area of low pressure in question is now out across the north sea. it will continue to drive its way further eastward, pushing into norway as we go through the afternoon. a case of blustery showers coming in behind it and the worst is over but gusty winds to come over the next few hours or so. go on into tuesday and it really is a case of things calming down nicely and more in the way of brighter skies coming back in and temperatures in london back to 11 degrees celius but the winds are going down nicely. >> thank you very much. we have this coming up, on the news hour, he didn't know the u.s. spy agency said barack obama was not told that the german chancellor's phone was bugged. and in sport another great year for a very great tennis player. ♪
♪ you are watching the news hour, i'm david foster and these are the top story, u.n. arab league arrived in damascus for talks with the syrian government and trying to get support for international peace conference on syria which is set to happen next month. argentina's ruling parties lost ground in mid-term election which could stop kirchner's ambitions for a third term and lost seats in four of the largest districts in the country but managed to keep control of congress. the u.n. security council is due to have emergency talks after
fighting in the eastern democratic republic of congo seeing a u.s. peace keeper killed and m 23 began on friday after a break down of peace talks and spain is the latest country to summon the u.s. ambassador after reports that the national security agency monitored millions of phone calls, text messages and e-mails of spanish citizens and earlier nsa said the country's president barack obama had no idea that merkel's phone was being tapped. and media have reported that obama was informed about the phone monitoring in 2010 and the union delegations expect to be member of congress to express its concerns over the u.s. spying program. in washington they are not happy so let's talk about that joining us on skype in a college in london. this is a bit of bluster and
won't change and knew it was happening anyway. >> the government official claims to be shocked, shocked that they are running a gambling casino and taking kickbacks at the same time. there is no doubt about it european leaders are aware that the u.s. engages in this work. many european spy agencies work alongside the nsa, dch q in the uk for example and there is no doubt there is bluff and bluster that you refer to it as and a lot of posturing going on for public consumption. it's merkel's phone and reaches right to the heart of government and is that intrusive that has everybody so cross about it. >> yeah, i think you are right. but to be quite honest with you, we live if an age now whereby
anybody who really puts anything on an e-mail or says anything across a telephone line that wouldn't want those messages revealed is probably making a bit of a mistake. so if we should take that approach as citizens and really i think that world leaders should be well aware their only communications will be monitored. one could take it another way and say if nsa was monitoring what merkel was saying ten years ago and maybe they spotted a potential leader and degree to which there is some degree of flattery going on here. >> reporter: stick to pigeon post or the old mail system and you have a chance of keeping things private and do you think anything will change as a result of this or all of we are terribly sorry and didn't mean to upset you, don't worry it won't happen again and it just continues as before? >> i hate to say it because it sounds cynical but i think you are right. if you look at who the european delegation here they won't be meeting president obama or the vice president or secretary of
state and there is a degree they will travel across the atlantic to shout to an empty room and they will meet some important individuals from congress and intelligence community but key decision makers are not in room and there is posturing going on and what they expect to gain out of this that than they don't know without flying 3,000 miles to get there. >> reporter: if they want information public they should get on the phone and do it that way, and james is talking to us from london out of king's college. and polls closed in the philippines where tens of thousands of people have been electing leaders and they are among the most dangerous in the world. at least 22 candidates and supporters have been killed in the last month. and we have more from the capitol manilla. >> reporter: 54 million people are expected to vote today here in the public school alone thousands have come in as early
as 6:00 a.m. local time. they are looking for their names on ballot lists and expected to vote for a cluster village government positions. now a manual system is used despite automated ones being introduced three years ago. >> translator: taking a long time for me to find my name on ballot lists and went everywhere and people died and still on the list and i went to other precincts but still don't see my name. >> translator: it's important that people exercise the right to vote and yes there are allegations of fraud but you have to vote. >> reporter: this may be a local election but it is one of the most crucial. government positions such as this one are considered to be the micro cosom of dine si and half of positions are coming from longstanding political families. this has been seen to be one of the reasons why corruption and injustice is so indemic in the
country and one of the bloodiest and the government recorded 100 cases of violence and 22 people have been killed and despite government assurances that 50 mechanisms are in order elections in the philippines are considered to be one of the most bloodiest in the world. >> reporter: elections in cambodia are three months ago and politicians are refusing to take seats in parliament and say they are guilty of fraud and want an independent investigation. and florence reports on a political standoff. >> reporter: in cambodia religion has been a source of guidance for people. the spiritual side of life, rarely crossing into the political realm. but that is changing. and he is one of several munks who have taken part in antigovernment protests in the
country. >> translator: according to buddhist teachings munks can participate in activities especially when the people are suffering from injustice. >> reporter: the opposition accuses the ruling party of using fraud to return to power. and led a serious of mass rallies in the capitol. during the latest demonstrations, thousands of people marched across the state to hand over position with more than 2 million thumb print to the u.n. and foreign embassy. they are trying to pressure the government into allowing an independent investigation into the election. >> the government has knowledge of the embassy and the government cannot do business with the rest of the world unless this issue is resolved properly. >> reporter: opposition politicians who won 55 seats out of 123 are boycotting parliament. on the day that members of parliament from the ruling party
was sworn in, opposition were in another city. the government has indicated it's not about to give in to demands. >> translator: it's to gain power and the election committee has already said the party has won't the election. >> reporter: the only concession the government has made is to announce it would hold a forum on electrical forum without giving details what it may look like. opposition meanwhile threatened to widen protests so far confined to the capitol and across the country and the political stalemate is set to continue, florence with al jazeera. >> reporter: three people have been killed in tiananmen square when a car crashed into pedestrians and caught fire. and it veered off the road north of the square crashing through barriers and into the crowd and several them including a police
officer has been hurt. bangladesh and two are killed during strikes by the opposition and thousands of riot split out on the streets of daka and they sit fire to a party ruling office there and opposition wants a nonpolitical caretaker government to over see elections in january. it is estimated that the indian state of karol uses 18 million tons of sand a day to keep up with the booming construction and sand is a bit of a precious commodity and people are mining, it and that is illegal and we report where the underground industry is harming local communities. >> he remembers the days when these waves broke way out in the distance. today during high tide or the annual monsoon he says the sea reaches the front steps of his house. the indian government built this wall to protect his community
from the effects of illegal sand mining, and coastal erosion. but it has not stopped the problem. >> translator: the mine is minded from 10 to 5 when no one is watching and sand loaded on motorcycles and trucks and taken away. >> reporter: sand mining, started small here but in resent years it has become a lucrative business. people here say that less than ten years ago the shore on this side was as wide as a football field. but there is not much left of it now. and the seawater is mixing with the freshwater river on this side of the bank. this community trade is also damaging land and livelihoods away from the sea. and his family has owned and farmed this fertile river bank for two centuries but over the past three years illegal sand
mining, has caused land slides that washed away ten meters of his property. >> translator: the sand mafia is running the street and the houses on the bank are also under threat. >> reporter: 44 rivers and tributaries flow through the state and most are being minded for sand. according to construction industry estimates they use 18 million tons of sand today. by 2020 it will use four times as much. environmentalist warn that fast-paced development along with unregulated sand mining, poses a big threat. >> development is okay but sustainable elements but they are going and doing destructive development. >> reporter: he will live on this receding coastline for as long as he can. and like many others all he can
do is hope that people in positions of power act before his home is washed away by the sea. and i'm with al jazeera. >> reporter: there has been an explosion north of gaza city after an israeli strike. no injuries have been reported. israel says the attack targeted two hidden rocket launchers and the army said it's in response from rockets fired by gaza in the early hours of monday. the court in israel will decide on tuesday whether or not a group of palestinians can continue their peaceful protest at a destroyed village. residents were forced out of their homes in 1948 and stephanie decker reports 65 years later their fight to return is still as strong as ever. ♪ their faith remains strong. but the longing of the people can only be answered by israel.
♪ the village church has been restored and offers hope and unity for the families who lived here for generations. and he is 87 years old and takes us to remains of his home. forced to leave during the creation of israel in 1948, and the houses bombed five years later his feelings are still raw. >> what i see, the everything here i see my mother, my brother, my neighbor. i can't describe for you exactly what i am feeling. too bad for this situation. >> reporter: to try to change that, the villages here set up a camp to send israeli government the message they have the right to return. they are israeli citizens and have a supreme court ruling from the early 1950s that says they must be allowed to come back and a ruling the government here has
always ignored and another court date to determine whether this people protest should be allowed to continue. >> translator: we are trying to fulfill the dreams of our grandparents who want to move back here and then we will start life again. >> reporter: for the moment dying is the only way that israel will allow the villagers to return. generations lie here and the struggle now for both young and old is to be able to come back here alive. and so if far now they call themselves refugees, unable to come to terms with the past. >> i remember everything here. i lived here. i have no memory from other places other than here. >> reporter: the village lies empty. and all that these people want is to be able to live here again. this is a simple wish but once
with complicated implications. israel fears the legal precedent it could set for the rights of other israeli palestinians and stephanie decker al jazeera in northern israel. >> reporter: this is what the israeli government told us. in 1951 the supreme court decision allowed the residents to return to their village so no legal warrant has been imposed by the state and goes on to stay immediately there after the state issued legal warrants in the appeal against the warrants was rejected by the supreme court. >> reporter: madrid gets the challenge back on track and we have that and more too. ♪ and good-bye to a rock legend, lou reed died at the age of 71
